a breeze, a feather, a dress draped with sunlight sprees,
twirled around fingers, soaked in seaside stories,
a novel, sandals, paper drowned in scribbles,
when moonlight shines beyond silhouettes and mazes,
an embrace, in flesh and salt and waves,
solitude engulfed under bubbly cheers,
veneered childhoods, fingernails peeling wood,
a scratch, a scratch, a scratch,
an anvil slammed on covered roots.
a stab, a stab, a stab,
barks, sap and shreds under neat silk straps.
